Council takes steps to protect sacred reserve

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 11th October 2017

Public feedback is wanted on a draft management plan for Takapūneke Reserve - one of the most culturally significant reserves in New Zealand.

Takapūneke Reserve sits between Akaroa and the settlement of Ōnuku on Banks Peninsula, and is a site of immense cultural and spiritual significance to Ngāi Tahu and Ōnuku Rūnanga.

Takapuneke Reserve, near Akaroa.In the early 19th century Takapūneke was an important centre for trade between Ngai Tahu and European settlers, but in 1830 a bloody massacre took place there, resulting in the site becoming tapu (sacred).

In 2002 the New Zealand Historic Places Trust registered Takapūneke as wāhi tapu (a place of outstanding historical or cultural heritage value). Seven years later it was officially classified as a historic reserve under the Reserves Act 1977.

Since 2012 Christchurch City Council has been working to have Takapūneke Reserve classed as National Reserve, which would give it the same status as the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The adoption of a reserve management plan under the Reserves Act 1977 is the first stage in applying for National Reserve status. 

In order to achieve that status and to ensure the reserve is protected for future generations, the Council has been working in partnership with Ōnuku Rūnanga to develop a management plan for the reserve.

You have until Friday 15th December 2017 to give feedback on the draft management plan.

Have your say online on the Takapūneke Reserve draft management plan. You can also give your feedback at the Akaroa Library, the Little River Service Centre, and the Civic Offices in Christchurch.

Drop-in sessions where people can get more information about the draft management plan for Takapūneke Reserve will be held on:

  • Tuesday 31st October, from 5 to 6.30pm: Christchurch City Council Civic Offices (enter off Worcester Street); and
  • Saturday 4th November, from 11am to 2.30pm: Akaroa Sports Complex Centre (Rue Lavaud, Akaroa).
